The worst things imaginable have been done in the name of God. You’d think He’d get angry.
Hacking group Anonymous are targeting international paedophile rings
‘Operation Death Eaters’ is campaign aiming to expose ‘paedosadists’
Global project is building a grassroots database of international cases
Hopes to ultimately expose an ‘international cult’ of child sex abuse
Calling on followers to research cases of high level corruption
Also demands ‘end to human trafficking and abuse complicity worldwide’
Named ‘Operation Death Eaters’ after Voldemort’s band of evil followers in the Harry Potter series, the group is calling for a global effort in exposing the paedophile rings through the power of social media.
Tens of millions of images of child abuse are believed to be circulating online on the ‘dark web’, many showing such graphic abuse that the media is turning a blind eye to the problem, experts warned this week.
Figures from the European Commission’s Global Alliance against Child Sexual Abuse Online suggest 50,000 new child abuse images are uploaded each year – of which more than 70 per cent are images of children under the age of 10.
Heather Marsh, author of Binding Chaos and who works with Anonymous, said: ‘Our central objective is to establish independent, internationally linked, victim-led inquiries into high level complicity, obstruction of justice and cover-ups in the paedosadism and child trafficking industries.
‘The premise behind OpDeathEaters is to expose high level complicity, obstruction of justice and cover up in the paedosadist industry in order to show the need for independent inquiries.’
Many offenders use social media to prey on their victims. Let them know you’re educated.
Let them know we’re working to stop them.
David Cameron has announced the creation of a specialist unit that will target users who view child abuse images online.
The National Crime Agency and GCHQ will head the task force, whose objective it is to expose those who use “dark web” Internet networks to exploit children.
The dark web refers to thousands of websites that are oftentimes only accessible via anonymizing services such as Tor and I2P that obfuscate people’s IP addresses. For that reason, many view the dark web as an “ungoverned” part of the “deep web,” which accounts for 90 percent of Internet traffic.
Governments have limited ability to exercise control over the dark web, or any part of the web for that matter. The UK government is therefore looking to tech companies, including Microsoft and Google, to step in and help.
Among other things, it is expected that Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, and Google will use an upcoming summit to announce technology that will allow them to permanently delete child abuse images they find on their sites.
